Trailblazer Award Honoree: Linnea Quigley

Linnea Quigley (born May 27, 1958) is an American actress, film producer, model, singer, and author. She is best known for the 1985 zombie horror film The Return of the Living Dead playing a teenaged punk Trash, which is considered one of her most notable roles and gained her the "scream queen" status.

IHFF is honoring Ms. Quigley for contributions both on and off screen. She embodies the spirit of the Festival's Trailblazer Award. Aside from her acting career, Quigley is also a singer (she formed an all-girl band The Skirts in the early 1980s) and an author (she wrote three books; The Linnea Quigley Bio & Chainsaw Book, I'm Screaming as Fast as I Can: My Life in B-Movies, and Skin). She is also a devoted animal rights activist and an active member of PETA.

Join us for an exclusive screening of Return of the Living followed by Award Presentation and Q&A, moderated by the eminent, George Prentice.
